    We only get $2.00 on call, and time and 1/2 if we go out. Per diem and part timers are not required to take call- sigh.

    Hubby works for a rural hospice and they get 1.00 per hour on call and then hourly pay for all hours out including drive, patient care and documentation time for that.

    I think hospice is the best I did 3 months with a hospice nurse while in school. I want to do hospice nursing once i gain more maturity as a nurse!!!!

    Cargal I am sorry but most hospices especially, non profits pay for your cell. The company hubby runs, hospice, buy the phones and give them to the nurses. Your being employed by a cheapskate. Sorry.
